I have been absent for a while! Combine being very busy at work, a week of vacation at my parents’ (which was not precisely a vacation, which is another post), and me dumping a giant glass of lemonade smack on top of my laptop—- and you have a distinct lack of posting.
(I still had internet access; I have several other devices on which I can get FB, e-mail, etc. But I don’t like typing on a netbook. I now have a work laptop on a temporary basis, and need to figure out finances to see when I can afford a new laptop of my own. It may be a while.)
The big news is that Elle is TWO YEARS OLD. Two! People tell you it flies by but you don’t believe them until all of a sudden you’re having a conversation—an actual conversation-- with your two-year-old daughter about Caill0u, and you realize… wow. Two.
I think I said this last year, but I'll say a variation of it again: I have made it through two years as a single parent. It hasn't always been pretty, mind you, but at the end of the day I have a healthy, happy daughter and that's really all that matters. Just ignore the piles of laundry in the corner and don’t look at my basement, thanks.
Happy birthday to my girl. I love you.
